There is no evidence for the creation of the world in six days. These people are beleivers
, who have faith in a their religion, they have not
'arrived' at this conclusion based upon a consideration of the evidence.
Argue with the scientists in the books not me. As to not being credible, well their employers seem to think they're credible
Forget about 'credible' or 'incredible' or 'scientist-nonscientist', what is the evidence
that they present? If they have no scientific
evidence then they can't consider their personal beleifs
to be scientific or rational. They are choosing
to beleive in YECism. This
book seems to try to make the claim that there is evidence, and this this 'second portion' is made up of scientists who came to creationism by
studying science, and without the influence of the bible. No bible, no YECism.
Michael Behe is one of the more prominent advocates of Intelligent Design Theory,
He's also a christian, and his ideas are an extension of christian natural theology, there is no evidence for intelligent design in nature, and behe
has never been able to scientifically demonstrate that there is. Also, notably, Behe accepts that not only does evolution occur, but that man
evolved from apes
. Or perhaps its dembski, I often confuse the two to tell the truth.
the above paper makes no religous statement
It also does not demonstrate that intelligent design can be detected.
But are those people Christians?
There are, supposedly, jewish creationists who take something like a 6 day aproach, and there are lots of muslim creationists who take a literal, adam
and eve, approach. As far as Intelligent Design, there are lots of people that 'promote' it, but I can't think of any non-christians at the
moment, tho I seriously doubt that there aren't any. What would
be difficult to find is an atheistic
advocate of intelligent design.
Thats because the intelligent agent in intelligent design is deity
. Aliens from another dimension could've made man, but eventually you get
to the first living intelligent beings, and they'd have to have arisen by the actions of a supernatural creator-god in intelligent design.
